Trivia

The house was old and 99% empty when production got there. EVERYTHING you see in this house was provided for by a tireless working Art Department led by Anthony Stabley. The only thing that wasn't brought in was the Wheel chair in that classic scene. That was there when production got there and it never moved it the whole time.. See more »

Surprisingly Effective
10 December 2017 | by lolchicken-98780See all my reviews

I thought this was rather good, as far as haunted house movies go. It does well with the tension and unsettling scenes, and there is a little gore but nothing over the top. The standard-issue teens behave reasonably sensibly - trying not to split up, running away rather than seeing what is under the sheet etc.. The worst thing about the movie is that it has that flat TV-show look rather than the cinematic depth of a real movie, and this lessens the atmosphere. If I were being super picky I would also fault it for a fairly random string of set pieces, most of which are taken from other films, that have only a tenuous link to a witchcraft theme; however, it's all done rather well and no-one was probably expecting originality here.
